Watchmen

It hasn’t been easy adapting Alan Moore’s epic comic into a satisfying screenplay. Terry Gilliam wanted to do it for awhile. Later there were rumors of a script by David Hayter to be shot in Prague with Darren Aronofsky at the helm, but he left the project. Next up was Bourne Supremacy director Paul Greengrass. As of 2007, director Zack Snyder (300, Dawn of the Dead) has the project. IMDB credits the new screenplay to David Hayter and Alex Tse.

This remake went through a few directors as well as writers. James Cameron was attached, then Oliver Stone, and finally Tim Burton.

Cameron gives his thoughts on the film in an Ain’t it Cool interview here.

Batman 2

Here’s an early version of Batman Returns. Sam Hamm wrote the first Batman (and has taken a crack at many other comic book movies), so it made sense for him to do a draft of the sequel. The final screenplay was written by Daniel Waters.
